'Cut Out' a section vertically or horizontally

Post by JongHo »

Hi. It would be good to cut out a unnecessary section horizontally or vertically. It is like 'Delete Rows or Columns in Excel'.

It could be called as 'Ripple Deleting' by which the size of canvas is extracted.

'Delete selection'?

With a warning if the selection does not extend to the full width or height of the image (canvas)?

The term “ripple delete” is used in video editing:
Zealous crop” has already been implemented in XnView MP.

It should be full width/height of a selection.

Yes! But the empty hole is not necessary. Right after I press a shortcut or icon, the leftover sections should be merged.

Zealous crop functionality can be added to Crop panel via checkbox,
if enabled - part of the image will be cut out based on selection's sides:
- long side - continued to the image edges and represent length of cut out
- short side - represent width of cut out
- equal sides - do nothing

In IrvanView this function is called "Remove/Insert Strip and is very useful, for example when working with larger Screenshots
